North Sails: News Details


J/24 UK National Championship

Extract from Rob Clark's report

Twenty-five teams from the UK, Ireland and USA headed to Plymouth to contest the UK Nationals at the start of July. 

With an all-star cast, including the 2010 and 2011 European Champions, 2013 US National Champions, as well as multiple UK and Irish National titles shared between the teams, racing was always going to be tight, with 6 different teams taking race wins from the 9 races contested and consistency being the key to establishing a good series. Masters of this were Chris McLaughlin / Ian Southworth and their Il Riccio team who, with every result inside the top 5, put enough space between them and their closest rivals to be able to reclaim the UK National Championship crown last held by them in 2006. Mike Ingham, Hitchhiker (USA 4242) took 2nd place and Rob Clark of JuJu (4252) 3rd.
